How To Be Epic @ Shakespeare

Rumpus created this special for CBBC’s How To Be Epic series to coincide with Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary celebration. Counting down the top 10 deaths in his plays we enjoyed the challenge of animating the most popular deaths, but in a child friendly way.

How To Be Epic @ Everything

We created all the animated sections for series 1 and 2 of How to be Epic @ Everything made for CBBC. We covered delights such as how to be epic at jousting, gladiator(ing) and maths in series 2 while series 1 contained a selection of Bad Luck Billy’s happiest, saddest and scariest moments.
